The Winston Pure 9' 4-weight 4pc rod is the size I consider for the serious trout angler whether you are fishing all across the country or just at home. I use this type rod to fish the Tricos on the Armstrong in Montana and Falling Springs in Pennsylvania, the March Browns on the Beaver Kill below Horse Brook Run and the Green Drakes on the North Branch of the Saranac. Why? For one thing a size 4 line will present all of these size flies accurately and delicately. Additionally, a number four rod will protect the finest leader tippet on the strike while having the power to subdue the largest trout easily so he can be safely returned to the stream. This is one of those "don't leave home without it rods".
